Will Iowa ruling have impact in California?

The ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court to allow same sex marriage, has been hailed by one of the leading opponents to California’s proposition 8 as shining the light of the world on the California Supreme Court as it considers the challenge to prop 8.

Shannon Minter, legal director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, who has led the legal challenge to prop 8 and was lead counsel in the California Marriage Case said:

Today’s historic decision from the heartland of our nation, affirming the
bedrock principle of equality for all, rightly puts a spotlight on the
California Supreme Court, which must rule on the validity of Proposition 8 in
the next 60 days.
The eyes of California and the world are now on the California Supreme
Court, which must determine whether equal protection means equal, and whether
Californians will continue to share that equality in the freedom to marry. We
hope the California Supreme Court will uphold the principle of equality, just as
the Iowa Supreme Court has done.
